We’ve had four weeks of the polls. We like Charlie Montoyo. Over the four weeks he’s had approval marks of 100%, 100%, 82% and 94%. He’s loved:
The confidence in the direction of the Blue Jays poll numbers are dropping. I don’t think that’s a surprise as we are all in a hurry to see the prospects, but the team is in no rush to bring them up.

Just for fun, I took a look at the Red Sox numbers. Their ‘confidence in the direction of the team’ was 100% the first week, and 100% the season week. Last week it as 76% and this week 64%.
Yankees fans not overly confident either. Their numbers over the four weeks are 91, 76, 72 and 64.
Orioles fans are surprisingly confident. Over the four weeks they have had percentages of 96, 89, 85 and 89. they have the same record as we do and they don’t have the prospects we do, so I’m not sure where the confidence comes from.
Rays fans have every right to feel good, and their polls show it: 89, 97, 97 and 97.
The least confident fans in baseball? Pirates fans, with a 36% confidence number this week.
The team with the lowest manager approval rating in the MLB is the Yankees at 34%. Yankees’ fans turn on their managers pretty quick. Aaron Boone had a 84% approval rating the first week of the polls.
